    I was sent an image for a 500 gig drive but the software keeps saying the WD 500 gig drives are to small so i guess I really need the 320gig image. Could someone please send me the 320gig image? Many Thanks in Advance :)

    Your drive may be just a touch too small as they can vary in size. What model is it?

    Are you using an older drive? It may be failing.

    Purchased 2 from Ebay. Units look brand new as stated in ad. Both are reporting approx 465 gb in Disk Manager. Also ran Diskpart/ Clean on both and still receive error stating image file is too large for drive.

    I don't think WD makes 500GB drives any more.
    You could get a 1TB WD10EFRX for about $65.

    Would rather just use a smaller image. Wife uses it to record only 2 OTA shows and deletes them right after she watches. Really don't need a bigger drive.

    With a smaller drive, shows can get deleted way sooner than expected when it gets filled up. When a show is deleted, it goes to the Recently deleted folder, until the space is needed for next recordings. Sometimes, it can over-estimate the space needed and removes more shows than expected.

    Using an older drive can have it fail sooner than expected as well. It can also be out of warranty, if you encounter problems.

    We used this 320Gb drive from new and never ran into any space issues. We don't really use the unit that much so having the smaller 320Gb image is not an issue. Thanks :)

    I am also in need of an image for a TCD746320. My hard drive is flaking out and when I start to copy to my new WD 2TB drive I get way too many errors and will not work.

    if someone could help I would greatly appreciate it.

    Whooooaaa...I just found this forum and my TCD746320 drive just died. Would it be possible to also get a copy of this image? Once I have it, I'm sure this forum will also show me how to burn it onto a new hard drive. I can't tell you how many hours I've been searching for something like this. Thanks in advance...Gordon
